Entertainment Alternatives In The Home

Next » « Previous


Today, an incredible amount of entertainment can be brought into your home including television, movies, video games and downloadable books -- all of which can be accessed on your computer.

A huge amount of television programming is still free and can be accessed with the old fashioned, inexpensive, antenna. 

While most cable or satellite hook-ups require a long term commitment,  there are services that do not require a long term commitment.

Likewise you can download movies as pay-per-view, or get an unlimited amount of movies from a company like Netflix ( offsite link)  for the period you want without a long term aqreement. You can cancel when you are able to get around.

You can also view premium channels by signing up and then cancelling at any time.

NOTE: Keep in mind that humor apparently helps with healing. Even if it doesn't, it makes you feel better. Dr. Normal Cousins used t.v. programs such as I Love Lucy.  Humorous programs and movies are available online and through movie rental companies. (For information about the benfits of humor and laughter, click here.)
